Katy’s Cool Wallhanging from My Stash!, originally uploaded by Cathi O’Neill.

I don’t have any photos of my progress this week, as a photo of some trimmed HSTs, one DJ block quilted, and more of a sock (ready to do toe on the second sock, nearly done!) just aren’t really exciting photos!

But look at what Katy has done in a few small increments of time our kids gave us for crafting, in between all our trips out sightseeing! She took the new Joel Dewberry fabric my friend Carrie got me, some other fabrics that work with it and made this cool wallhanging 🙂 I planned to make her one of my moebius baskets eventually, but kept passing by my own one, knowing that she loved the colors, and just figured, hey, I’ll make another one to keep later. So I traded her the bowl for the quilt, lol!!

We’ve been having a great time seeing things locally, going dolphin watching, visiting castles, taking kids swimming… My girls are loving have Katy’s two big girls and their lovely son Alex here, they get along really well!! Katy is a great cook too, and has made many of our meals, for which I am grateful, since I suck at cooking for large numbers of people, and am just not a relaxed cook.
Running through Garykennedy Woods The Kids Chilling Out

Katy and I went to my patchwork groups monthly evening meeting last night, what a group of insane fun people, we couldn’t stop laughing. I plan on taking her to my local quilt lady to peruse some fabrics on Saturday, when the mom’s finally get a few hours out without kids, lol.

Aine starts school on Monday, sniff sniff. Aisling is potty trained. I feel like singing “Sunrise Sunset”. Where did the time go?


Moebius Bowl, originally uploaded by Cathi O’Neill.

This is my first Moebius bowl and my first felting experience. Most people probably felt using their washing machine. Most of Europe use front loading machines, which you can’t open during the cycle to check on the felting, so I used the bathtub, bubble bath and two exuberant toddlers to agitate my bowl for felting, lol. It turned out pretty well, but is still loose…I think I will try to refelt it and tighten it up again…wool is very forgiving!!
